Flowers are just gorgeous in the park. Great for a walk and to sit and enjoy the water view and beautiful flowers.

This is a very pretty park right on the river. Beautiful flowers. Nice place to sit on a bench and read or nap.

Went here on family reunion, played kanjam for a couple of hours. Good place to go with a group and hang out.

Lovey landscape also features trial beds of Proven Winner annual flowers. Great for the garden enthusiast to see annual beddings which they might try in their own home garden. During our visit a concert was in session in the adjacent waterfront area which you could hear from benches in Prescott Park.

Have been coming here for years. Little Mermaid was well done, actors appeared to be a notch above years past. Background could of been refreshed a bit. Over all a wonderful night!

Enjoyed a picnic in the park for my Husband's birthday. Watching the bridge raise and lower for boats was my daughters fave! There are benches and lots of shade trees. Just plan ahead for parking. We saw quite a few people illegally parked and Portsmith PD came to ensure people were doing the right thing.

We were looking for a place to stretch our legs on our trip. Prescott park was perfect. The walk was beautiful with several fountains, lots of flowers, and boats in the harbor.

Can't say enough about the great job they do putting on the summer play in the park. This years play was The Little Mermaid. The costumes and puppets were amazing! The entire cast had great singing voices, especially the chef. It's shows like this that keep us coming back year after year.
